Books on Film

Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library - Central Library

6 p.m.
  Have you ever wondered what your favorite book would look like on film? Generations of filmmakers have answered that question by using literature as a reservoir for their creative vision.  "Books on Film" is a monthly series that celebrates the written word on film by screening movie versions of popular and classic books. Films are screened on the second Monday of every month at 6 p.m. in Room A-5, located on library's lower level.  Just call 202-727-0321 to see what's playing this month!

Fantasy Flicks

Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library - Central Library

6 p.m.
It's just what it says on the tin: movies with some element of realism, some parsimonious narrative shred of the numinous, the impossible, the beguilingly made-up. Planets uninhabited and otherwise, fairies, space marines, time travel, wayward otherworldly machines, and the reality-bending light-out-of-darkness of every universe.  And, perhaps, a little adventure and romance, if our voyage permits.
